Special offers for car rental in Cape Town

We care about your budget and in conjunction with rental companies of the city of Cape Town, we regularly make deals and launch special offers. Start monitoring prices for dates you are interested in right at the beginning of planning your trip, so you have a better chance to rent a car with the maximum benefit. The most reasonable time is 2-4 months before the start of the rental time within normal periods and 3-6 months within the high season.

When you book, you fix the cost indicated on the current date. If the trip for some reason will not take place, you may cancel the booking free of charge 24 hours before the start of the rental time.

BE CAREFUL. When you receive a car, you may need a credit card, and you will not be able to use a debit card. You can find further information about details in advance in the Payment Methods section.

Deposit and credit card information

If a provider does indicate the need to provide a credit card when booking, and you do not have it, check the status of your debit card on www.bindb.com. The fact is that some debit cards are actually credit cards with zero limit. If your card is one of them, you may use it.

Due to this specialized car aggregator, I always save money even on luxury cars.

Initially I booked a hire car from Gold Car for a holiday in Malta via Cars Scanner. My initial feedback is good: the website is clear, the price of the car hire from Gold Car beat all the opposition by miles. The telephone operator was always polite and helpful on the times I rang. The friction and unhappiness occurred post booking. 48 hours before our trip I realised I had misplaced the PIN number of the credit card. I rang both Gold Car (who were utterly useless and simply recommended taking out a vastly inflated insurance policy) and Cars Scanner who gave several sensible suggestions. Due to the dreadful experience of my communications with Gold Car I did not want to give them more money and agreed with Cars Scanner to move (at no extra charge - a kind concession) to Rhodium. My experience with Rhodium was the worst car hire experience in 30 years of hiring cars abroad (see separate review). My criticism of Cars Scanner is that they did not disclose that Gold Car and Rhodium are fundamentally the same company and it is improbable they did not know this given how easily I checked this upon our return plus when I completed the Cars Scanner feedback questionnaire I asked for someone to contact me and supply evidence to support a number of assertions made by staff at Rhodium regarding information I would have been given by them: to date no response from Cars Scanner.

Everybody should travel about the countries of Western Europe only by car. You'll get a lot of impressions and unexpected discoveries that are impossible with common tours. Usually I rent cars at the place of destination. Once there was no necessary car at the provider. And after that situation I began to use online booking sites. The choice is much larger, and the price doesn't differ from the price of the on-site rental. It's very convenient and profitable.
